UK minister for culture Ed Vaizey has said he'd back a move to help create a gaming room in the Houses of Parliament.
"I asked if I could put a games console in my room in the department," Vaizey told Edge. "The powers that be were against it, because people coming for meetings would assume that I was spending every spare minute playing games!
"Perhaps I will be more firm and say I want a games console in my office to put on display and show the best of British gaming - I would happily do that! And I think that's a very good point: people don't think twice about the fact that every MP has a TV in their room. As for setting up a gaming room, why shouldn't we?
"If the industry wanted to start talks along those lines with the Commons Society, I would certainly support them," he added.
Vaizey also said Plants Vs Zombies is currently his favourite game. Read the full Edge interview here.
